thanks for pointing Corey, in fact im already studying its source ... this
core aware architecture , and share nothing mechanisms are just brilliant,
each core running its own tcp stack, while it has one core exclusive for
the device pooling its great... is jails working that way?
Ow, errata about L4 , in fact it is an exokernel an it has a "OSLib".. i
found OC.fiasco, a pitty is that it uses c++ and it gets harder to
collaborate with the large operating system C stacks.
i was pointed to the rump project from netbsd too
http://www.netbsd.org/docs/rump/index.html, and is a oslib.. very nice!
thanks everybody, for the help an tips!
